Westport's Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County will honor the patients and families it has served during the past year at an ecumenical "Celebration of Life" memorial service on June 7.

The service is planned from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Waveny Castle, 677 South Ave., New Canaan, and is open to anyone who has lost a loved one. The interfaith service will include readings, acts of remembrance and a candle-lighting ceremony conducted by a team of nurses and caregivers. A reception will follow the service.

"It is important to celebrate the lives of our loved ones and to give thanks for all they have meant to us," Christine Pfeffer, the organization's hospice director, said in a Visiting Nurse news release. "We wish to express our gratitude and to acknowledge that our loved ones remain in our hearts."
